Well the CFO (my wife) has OK'd the purchase of a new bike. I have been thinking about this for a while. No internet purchase, no not even a LBS, I decided to go directly to the LBF (local bike factory). I figure if I go directly to the manufacturer, I can get what I want. So I traveled the 0.8 miles to the LBF - Waterford Precision Cycles.
I was fitted and ordered a 2200 with all stainless lugs (italian) with the matching steel fork with SS crown. Should be ready about Christmas time - so I can stare at it until spring.
